Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Dabbagh Welfare Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Dabbagh Welfare Trust we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Dabbagh Welfare Trust to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Dabbagh Welfare Trust will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Dabbagh Welfare Trust receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Why should a Muslim pay Zakat?

Zakat, the fourth pillar of Islam, is a compulsory form of charity that every eligible Muslim must pay annually. Its proper expenditure has the profound potential to alleviate the suffering of millions, demonstrating the far-reaching impact of this Islamic practice.

Paying Zakat reminds us that our wealth is a trust from Allah, to whom everything ultimately belongs. In fulfilling this obligation, Muslims acknowledge Allah’s sovereignty over all possessions. This act of giving is not a favour to the Divine but a means of purifying one’s wealth. It is a spiritual duty that helps cleanse the soul, removing sins and fostering a deeper sense of gratitude and responsibility towards society.

Moreover, Zakat is a powerful tool for social equality and economic justice. It ensures the redistribution of wealth, thereby reducing the gap between the rich and the poor. This act of charity is not merely a financial transaction but an expression of empathy and solidarity with those less fortunate.

Allah says:

“And establish prayer and give Zakat, and whatever good you put forward for yourselves – you will find it with Allah.” (2:110, Qur’an)

Zakat and Self Purification

Through Zakat, we embark on a journey of self-purification and social responsibility, reinforcing the core Islamic values of compassion and generosity. Donating Zakat is one of the best ways of contributing to the welfare of the ummah, ensuring that everyone’s basic needs are met and maintaining the social fabric of the Muslim society.

When should one donate Zakat?

Zakat can be donated at any time, but many Muslims prefer to do so during Ramadan or Dhul Hijjah due to the spiritual significance of these months. Ramadan, a time of fasting and reflection, offers the potential for greater rewards for good deeds. Dhul Hijjah, known for the Hajj pilgrimage, is also a time of heightened religious devotion. Paying Zakat during these periods aligns with the pursuit of blessings and provides timely support to those in need. It’s crucial to calculate and distribute Zakat correctly to ensure it fulfils its intended purpose.

7 Virtues of Giving Zakat

Purification and Growth

“Take, [O, Muhammad], from their wealth a charity by which you purify them and cause them to increase…” (Quran 9:103)

This ayah emphasises that Zakat purifies the giver’s wealth and soul, and is believed to bring blessings and growth in their remaining possessions.

Promotion of Social Equality

The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said, “Give the Zakat of your wealth; it is a purifier which purifies you.” (Sahih Muslim)

Zakat is a means to redistribute wealth in society, reducing the gap between rich and poor, and promoting social justice and equality.

Eradication of Greed

Zakat is a means to “And those in whose wealth there is a recognised right for the (needy) petitioner and the deprived” (Quran 70:24-25)

This practice helps in controlling and eradicating greed and selfishness, fostering a spirit of empathy and generosity.

Divine Reward and Protection

The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said, “Charity extinguishes sin as water extinguishes fire.” (Tirmidhi)

Zakat is seen as a way to earn Allah’s pleasure and protection from various kinds of harm and sins.

Strengthening Faith and Spirituality

“But the righteous will be in gardens, and in happiness, enjoying what their Lord has given them, and their Lord protected them from the punishment of Hellfire. [It will be said], ‘Eat and drink in satisfaction for what you used to do.’ They will be reclining on thrones lined up, and We will marry them to fair women with large, [beautiful] eyes. And those who believed and whose descendants followed them in faith – We will join with them their descendants, and We will not deprive them of anything of their deeds; [every] person for what he earned is retained.” (Quran 52:17-21)

Regularly giving Zakat strengthens a Muslim’s faith and spiritual connection with Allah.

Guarantee of Blessings in the Hereafter

The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said, “Charity does not in any way decrease the wealth and the servant who forgives, Allah adds to his respect; and the one who shows humility, Allah elevates him in the estimation (of the people).” (Sahih Muslim)

By giving Zakat, Muslims are promised blessings and a higher rank in the Hereafter.

Fostering Community Solidarity

“Zakat expenditures are only for the poor and for the needy and for those employed to collect [zakat] and for bringing hearts together [for Islam]…” (Quran 9:60)

Zakat is a tool for fostering unity and solidarity within the Muslim community, ensuring care for those who are vulnerable.
